Am I good enough?

Whether overtly or subtly, and to varying degrees, I mostly gauge my worthiness on external things.

If I have the latest gadget, the perfect home, family, friends, the career, the perfect size, looks, personality – if I have all these then I will be fulfilled and feel good about myself – I will be seen to be ‘good enough’.

The truth is, whether the world sees me as ‘good enough’ or not, I can never be truly fulfilled from what I am, what I have, what I do on an external and material level. It is the goodness that is within me that will fulfil me and raise my levels of happiness and contentment.

Let me start tapping into this goodness.

I learn to talk to myself sincerely. I ask myself – who am I? What am I? What is my true nature? Without intellectualising and interfering, I let the questions reach deep within. I spin the questions in the mind and the answers come. Deep down I know my own truth. I need to just harness the power from this truth.

It is this power of truth that will protect me from being drawn into false beliefs time and time again.

 

Om Shanti

The Unlimited Me

happiness

Am I aware of how I limit my capacity by imposing constraints and restraints on myself?

Knowingly or unknowingly, my beliefs and perceptions are continually limiting me. How I think, how I feel, how I respond are based on these ‘old’ learnt beliefs and perception.

Subconsciously, I have learnt to create my own limited reality. It provides safety, security and above all I am in control. Behave any differently and fear of the unknown and unexpected arises and brings with it the feeling of vulnerability.

Choosing to base my life on a limited reality means I am not able to ‘see’ that in fact I am making an infinite reality, finite. Everything within my limited reality, including the world, relationships and myself, all become finite.

I am a soul, an energy that is eternal and immortal – one without limits. To realise myself in this way I need to become unlimited, Let me choose to go beyond my self-created limits – physical, mental and emotional.

When I am able to conquer the illusion of fear that keeps me limited, I will break through all boundaries and be free as I was always meant to be.

 

Om Shanti

The Value behind Reaction

2015-04-20_0810_001There are often reactions that happen within situations – either I react or others react. The situation then becomes a confrontation.

When a value or belief that someone holds is challenged then they can react. Reaction is a way of defending and upholding the underlying value that is being challenged.

It is actually not a question of what is right or wrong and therefore the way to resolve it is also to go beyond trying to prove its correctness or not. The way to resolve reaction is to foster respect for what they value and then respond accordingly.
After all, no matter the situation, it is not my place to undermine someone else’s belief/value.

Reaction happens for a reason and if I am able to understand and give respect to the underlying belief/value that they wish to uphold then the reaction will easily dissolve.

 

Om Shanti

Cloaked by the Mind

generic_1

Our mind is like a canvas upon which we can consciously ‘create’ and bring newness into our life.

However, we quite often find that our thinking is coloured by distractions of deeply held memories, beliefs and perceptions within our sub-conscious.

And we find that instead of being ‘creative’ we simply continue to lead a life of repetition – based on these memories, beliefs and perceptions.

Holding onto things – thoughts, images, ideas, concepts or beliefs does not allow us to be creative with new possibilities and insights.

The ‘old things’ that are on our minds create a cloak over us in a way that does not allow us to realise the potential of something new.

We ‘cloak ourselves in this way, sometimes consciously or more often unconsciously, and develop a false sense of ‘I’.

Uncloak yourself and create the new you!

 

Om Shanti

I Believe

believe

Our intentions stem from our belief about who we are, where we are and why we are here.

If we believe we are physical and mortal beings, we will believe we are here to survive as long as possible. This creates a competitive mindset. It will drive us to get what we think we need before others, leading to competition and perhaps even the fear of not getting.

If we know we are souls – immortal and imperishable energy – then survival is no longer an issue and our intentions expand to include, connect with and enlighten others. Action will embrace the ability to help others and will be fully free from fear.

How do I live my life. Who do I believe I am?

Om Shanti

Guilty!

 

guiltyWe often see or hear things that colour our vision of and beliefs about people.

Even if we are unaware of the circumstances, instead of seeing them as ‘innocent until proven guilty’ we automatically feel they must be guilty because our thoughts, feelings, word and actions are influenced by a belief already imprinted in our subconscious. So the way we see, hear or think about someone is coloured by that impression.

Whether they are guilty or not will make no real difference to me as a person. However this habit of holding on to negative impressions about people makes us the ones who support and empower those negative traits within our own personality. If I dislike someone then I am the one that experiences the negative feelings of ‘dislike’ within myself. We become the ones that experience the negative emotions and feelings that they generate.

So who is ‘guilty’ and who is paying the price?

 

Om Shanti
